It is not well known that painful SI joints are the source of low back pain up to 25% of the time. The SI joints contain cartilage just like other mobile joints in the body and are susceptible to arthritis and pain. The joints connect the sacrum to the pelvis and see a considerable amount of stress during walking and physical activity. A person may develop chronic pain in the SI joint or pain that exacerbates from time to time.
The pain management doctors in Las Vegas at Innovative Pain offer individualized treatment for SI joint pain. This may include a steroid injection under fluoroscopy (real time x-ray), trigger point injections, or possibly a new procedure known as radiofrequency ablation. The radiofrequency procedure may provide long term relief for SI joint pain and enable increased activity and less need for pain medications.
Additional treatment possibilities include topical pain medication or oral ones. These may include short term opiates if necessary or non-narcotic medications. The treatments are customized, as no two patients truly present identical or have the same response to therapy.
Innovative Pain Care offers both a Las Vegas and a Henderson pain management clinic. Over 50 insurance plans are accepted including PPO’s, Medicare, Worker’s Compensation, Personal Injury Liens and self pay.
